Microbiological environmental contamination

03 Jun 2022

Most contaminants are invisible to the naked eye. But the experts at Austral Chemicals have developed a know-how to measure and control them in the food industry in order to prevent public health risks.

While the proper use of detergents and disinfectants by trained personnel is a requirement for any quality manager and plant manager, the regular use of AirTest allows fast and efficient microbiological mapping and the identification of critical areas to take appropriate measures to finally ensure contaminant-free air.

AirTest is an aerobic collector to sample the environment and control aerobic contamination. This equipment recovers all types of germs present in the environment such as: Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter, E. Coli, Pseudomonas, Aspergilllus, Mucor, Cladosporium, Penicillium, Geotrichum, Candida.
